Steroids in Sports

I'm shocked, shocked that professional athletes are using steroids. The powers in sports and government seem quite comfortable overlooking all the mutants in professional and amateur sports until someone actually tells the truth, then they crucify the whistle blowers.

Now you have senators saying they're going to crack down on pro baseball. Hellooooo. Have they watched a pro or college football game lately? If 50% of baseball players use steroids, the number must be 95% in pro football. They did not get that way with protein powder and vitamins.

Personally I don't care what these athletes do. They are making a conscious choice to pollute their bodies in exchange for money, girls, fame, etc. We as a society really need to figure out where to be on this. Let's either get serious and stop the abuse or acknowledge that it happens and accept it. Anything less is a disservice to the people they claim to be trying to protect--the kids.
